Overview

The newest edition of this textbook emphasizes modern surface chemistry and catalysis concepts uncovered by breakthough molecular level-studies of surfaces over the past three decades. This resource also serves as a reference for properties of surfaces and interfaces. For students, the text presents the basic concepts in various properties of surfaces such as structure, thermodynamics, dynamics, electronic properties, and chemical bonds on surfaces. For advanced readers, it covers recent developments in in-situ surface analysis such as high pressure scanning tunneling microscopy, ambience pressure X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, and sum frequency generation vibrational spectroscopy (SFG).

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above." (Choice, 1 March 2011)

"It has been extensively revised, especially in the area of nanoparticles." (Chemistry World, August 2010)

Booknews
An introductory level text for students of physical sciences and engineering, emphasizing the modern concepts of surface chemistry and catalysis uncovered by molecular level studies of surfaces over the past two decades. It reveals the current molecular level understanding of surface phenomena and its relation to macroscopic surface properties, focusing on the properties of solid-gas and solid-vacuum interfaces, because most of the results of modern surface science studies on the molecular level come from the scrutiny of these interfaces.
